Radiation damping is a combined manifestation of the nuclear spins and the resonant circuit. Radiation damping effects are becoming increasingly important in the high field NMR spectra of biological macromolecules when dissolved in aqueous solutions. This phenomenon was first discovered by Suryan in 1949 and a complete mathematical treatment was provided by Bloembergen and Pound in 1954. In this review, a historical perspective of Suryan's line broadening, commonly known as radiation damping is presented and methods that can suppress or utilize it advantageously are discussed with an emphasis of this phenomenon in the current state of high resolution solution NMR spectroscopy.
